Mada Custom Apparel New Title Sponsor For Merchandise Shop At Witter Field

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. – The Wisconsin Rapids Rafters are proud to announce an enhanced partnership with MADA Custom Apparel for the 2016 season that will include the naming rights to the Rafters team store. Located along the third base side of the main concourse at Witter Field, the team store will now be referred to as the MADA Rafthouse Team Shop and will feature a wide variety of team merchandise including the newly updated Rafters team logo. The building is also home to the team’s Front Office.

“We are extremely excited to further our partnership with MADA Custom Apparel to provide a whole new lineup of merchandise for the upcoming season,” said Rafters general manager John Fanta. “The quality products and service that we have received from MADA Custom Apparel are just a couple of the reasons we are excited to continue working with their local business as we move forward.”

Constructed prior to the start of the inaugural season in 2010, the MADA Rafthouse Team Shop log cabin was built with the intention of providing year-round access to team apparel while keeping the organization’s central logging theme. The Rafters Front Office moved into the building prior to the 2011 season. The MADA Rafthouse Team Shop is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm during the year, including game days. A full line of new merchandise will be unveiled in mid-May for the 2016 season.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with the Rafters,” said Joe Milanowski, owner of Mada Custom Apparel. “We’ve been season ticket holders since the team was established in 2010 and enjoy the quality baseball, between inning entertainment, and fun game atmosphere the Rafters have created. We are looking forward to the 2016 season.”
